Digital Imaging Adoption Model

A strategic roadmap to digital imaging maturity

Jointly developed by HIMSS Analytics® and the European Society of Radiology (ESR), the Digital Imaging Adoption Model (DIAM) helps to evaluate the maturity of IT-supported processes in medical imaging in both hospitals and diagnostic centres.

This eight-stage maturity model drives your organisational, strategic and tactical alignment towards imaging-IT maturity. With its standardised approach, it enables regional, national and international benchmarking.

Participants will receive a gap analysis with detailed action items for future investment decisions. In addition, DIAM provides an authoritative basis for presentation to the management level.
